% of americans. his company shipped jobs overseas. >> higher deficits, chronic unemployment, a president who admits he can't work with congress. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> but he says he's had only four years. that's all mitt romney needed. he turned massachusetts around. turned the deficit into a rainy kay -- day fund. >> and they are crisscrossing the nation, attracting huge crowds in one or the other of eight key battleground states in search of a break out message. >> there is no more serious message in the presidential campaign than who can you trust? trust matters. who is going to look out for you? and here's the thing. nevada, you know me by now. you know i say what i mean. and i mean what i say. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new, bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. gwen: and that's just what you can see. the campaign is coming down to science -- numbers-crunching, door-knocking,
. on the other hand, we all spent so much time worrying about the deficit, so much time worrying about the long-term fiscal situation of the country and the fact is the fiscal cliff solves our deficit problem. it does come with something of silver lining. that if congress does nothing, our whole deficit problem isn't solved because we have to deal with medicare and rise of health costs over the next 20 or 30 years but medium term deficit problem is solved by the fiscal cliff with the increase in taxes and automatic decline in spendispen spending it disappears. for once, if congress does nothing, it will make major progress on the deficit. >> thanks so much. david, thanks for standing by and being with us. >> thank you. >> up next, marathon madness. the race goes on despite mounting controversy. and this weekend, we're turning rockefeller plaza into democracy plaza, broadcasting there this sunday. a special edition of "andrea mitchell reports" at a special time, 3:00 eastern only right here on msnbc. what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what mat
for the deficit. we will look at some of the numbers, all of that on the other side of the debate. please stay with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this past year was $1.1 trillion. if you are not going to raise taxes, what are the things you can cut to get close to erasing a $1.1 trillion deficit? >> we should be about $230 billion, but we have to look at agencies that were created that are not meeting up to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at th
and that there are -- i mean, in past budget deficits, big budget deals, there have been efforts made, successful efforts to either expand or protect low income programs. so it is possible to do without putting at risk the most vulnerable, the major deficit reduction packages of 1990, 1993 and 1997 all protect programs for low income americans as did the bowles-simpson proposal that was under consideration last summer that pushed out, that created the sequester. the resolution of which created the sequester and the current cliff that we're looking at. so i guess i would say i don't disagree that these programs are at risk, but it's important to know that lots of people are working to protect them, and that it is, certainly, these are not programs that are contributing to the long-term fiscal problems in the country, and so there's no reason why they can't be protected as part of the resolution. >> just to clarify, um, while the big programs like snap are not subject to sequester, you know, lie heap, wic which is the special nutrition program for women, infants and children, head start, there are a number
first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
ran deficits. when daniels came into power on budgets you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know, how are we going to mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana? >> if you would have spent the last 12 years in india rather than in congress you would know your budget has to be balanced. i balanced and produced balanced budgets. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key governors races from across the country on c- span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign2012. host: we turn our attention now to the history of the october surprise. or events that happened before an election. our guest is joining us from their studios in washington you wrote that the october's surprise is a long story and mostly exaggerated history. so, why we have october surprises an
is going to reduce the deficit. >> sean: really? if you know he how to do all these things why haven't you done them the past four years? is that the best you have got, mr. president? we see what your hopey changey thing brought us all. today the unemployment rate rose yet again. higher than when you took office four years ago and now stands at 7.9%. at this point in your presidency you predictd that by october of 2012 the unemployment rate would be, let's see, 5.2% at this stage. earlier, congressman paul ryan talked about the long list of obama's broken promises. there is no end to it. watch this. >>> remember when said he would cut the deficit in half? i don't even have to follow up that one, do i? what we are seeing today is that 23 million americans are struggling to find work today. what we see today s that 15% of our fellow country men and women are living in poverty. this is the highest poverty rate in a generation. the economy is growing at less than half the rate the president said it would be growing at if only he could borrow a bunch of money and spend it on his cronies in the
of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, allowed him to get out there and show some leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep yo
to help the middle class. [applause] we know what is going to grow jobs, reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney is offering eight it. it is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not changed. leaving millions without health insurance, that is not changed. . a another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that is not change. [applause] refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies -- not change. rolling out a compromise by pledging the tea party's agenda, us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in new york city may or may not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency stand
better in terms of people who were more confident about handling the economy and the deficit which are the one and two areas of concern among likely voters. now, that's pretty interesting that the person who has the lead in those things is behind in the polls. and it shows i think the big problem for romney now is where will a new gust of momentum come from. he needs one. there's a jobs report on friday. that could conceivably be it. what if it's not. and now you have a kind of desperate lob grenade, try to find something that connects because the president -- >> peanut butter give. >> the president gets to engage on the campaign. he gets to be doing his job, to be a very serious person, going to see the damage in new jersey, seeing what he can do. it really is a big problem for romney right now. >> initially nothing for romney to do himself. i mean nobody cares what mitt romney thinks about the storm recovery in new jersey. it's very challenging position for him. >> what do we think of the new jeep ad up, which is airing in ohio and trying to undermine the president's credibility
women cannot be wonderful mothers. of course they can. are their role deficits and what happens to the flourishing of children? the answer is yes. no matter what the cause, you have had a divergence between working middle-class america and upper-middle-class america that so transcends anything having to do with a share in comcome inequality and unless we come to grips with that change we're going to be stuck on dead center. >> that is a pretty dynamic example of marriage. is this something government can do to restore marriage as an institution? do we need to? >> i think to understand the phenomenon that you're talking about, and it is a very important one. you have to understand the related cultural phenomenon. you have to prove she women's occupational upgrading and accomplishments and the earnings advances which of gone in a completely different direction than in. men's wages for a middle and low-income has stagnated in fallen while women's hats and evidently gone up. about the middle as well. i am not saying that there are not lots of women facing tough problems in the job m
. that's crazy. but because we've got such a gigantic deficit right now, peter, you're exactly right. if the congress says okay, let's put more money in the 'til for fema, that money is probable lea going to be borrowed from china. >> peter: also, people sign up and they pay for flood insurance program and so they pay premiums and it should be paid. but there is a cost. >> gretchen: yeah. i think most americans don't mind paying taxes if it's going to help these devastated people. they might want to crack down on waste that we're in the government first. >> peter: that's absolutely right. >> gretchen: so when the president went to new jersey yesterday, he flew over point pleasant, one of the most devastated regions in new jersey with governor christie. somebody else had something else in mind. apparently they're not a president obama fan. because in all the sand that washed up, somebody put letters r, o, m, n, e, y. >> steve: why? because they love him. we have gotten some cables labeled secret that shows that about less than a month before the assault on our consulate in benghazi, a
that you were running the statehouse, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power just a couple years later on budgets you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. you know, john, facts are stubborn things, and i'd just like to know from my colleagues on stage how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana? >> congressman, if you'd have spent the last 12 years in indiana rather than in congress, you'd know that our budget has to be balanced. indiana, according to our constitution. i've balanced and produced bipartisan balanced budgets, and oldly, these -- oddly, these you talk about, they were supported by david long and our lieutenant governor, becky skillman. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice, but five times, congressman, you voted to -- and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion, billion with a b, dollars. >> find key house, senate and governor's races from across the countr
. the only way to pay for it according to every expert in the country is increasing the deficit or raising taxes on the middle class and that's a real difference, and a real difference to the people of iowa who on average middle class families pay $3600 less in taxes as a result of the president's policies. but as we said earlier today, we didn't get their endorsement in the democratic primary in 2008, but we managed to soldier on. we'll soldier on here. we're confident we are going to win iowa. >> what about pennsylvania because democrats have been saying that it's solid, that they don't pay attention to polls showing that it's more in play, but now $2 million from restore our future from the super pac for mitt romney being invested into pennsylvania. is pennsylvania in play? >> i think that the romney campaign is trying to put it in play. they can't figure out how to get to 270 electoral votes they're losing in ohio. we are tied in florida and our ground game is turning out. they can't win without one of the states. they're trying to expand the map. they're going to be unsuccessful in do
and this deficit? that's mostly what i have worked on the house over the past 12 years. >> reporter: meanwhile, richard carmona's most obvious political asset is his life story. born in new york to puerto rican parents, carmona lived homeless as a child and dropped out of high school. he joined the u.s. army and became a decorated vietnam veteran before attending medical school. he was eventually appointed surgeon general by president george w. bush. carmona also served as sheriffs deputy along the u.s. border with mexico. democrats hope that bipartisan background can appeal to the independents, who make up a third of the state's voters. the candidate talks about republican efforts to recruit him while he served in as surgeon general. >> the republican party did ask me to become a republican. i said why? i was an independent my whole life, because i always thought that there were good sides-- both sides had good solutions to problems. unfortunately, we got so partisan now that democracy's in the gridlock, because nobody can agree on compromising. compromise becomes a four-letter word. >> repor
to fiscal sustainability. the deficit reduction we need in the long run is to stablize the nation's debt load. what we need to do is very clear. that is the good news. the bad news is we have to execute on that. that will be difficult. that's why i think over the next three to six months as we work through these issues the numbers could be softer than we are experiencing now. businesses are going to be very concerned and worried about what is going to happen. >> i want to talk quickly about sandy. you made your estimate i think as the one being quoted the most about $50 billion. what about the impact on the national economy? >> you know, it's going to affect the monthly data so vehicle sales were soft. we already saw that because of the effects of the last few days of october. but by the end of the year certainly by spring this will all iron out. i don't think bottom line sandy is going to have a big impact on the national economy. it's not a game changer at any time. >> all right. mark zandi of moody's analytics the man we always turn to on these fridays. we're going to keep following t
to be done. the fiscal cliff. looking at medicare. looking at medicaid. look at these huge deficits that we have coming up. so the president, if he is re-elected will have some huge challenges. his theory all along has been if in fact he's re-elected that the fever among republicans to essentially say no to everything will break. that this election will be a referendum on the way they have governed or failed to govern over the last four to eight years and in that way they will be able to forging some compromise. i think one area that folks talk about that might actually people might be able to make headway around is immigration, especially if you have a situation after this election where republicans don't do well among latinos that could be some common ground that both of these parties could find. >> bill, the romney campaign is arguing that the president's so-called midwest fire wall is in trouble. take a listen, this is the campaign political the director, this is him on wednesday. take a listen. >> the fire wall that i think they talked about was iowa, wisconsin and ohio. right now thei
'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. freight railroads plan to spend $23 billion on their network. i'm mitt romney, that's like launching 4 mars rovers, 10 gps satellites, and 20 space shuttles ...all in one year. and not a penny of it comes from taxpayers. ♪ >> the principle is, that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what is going on. >> to me, that is not only... those people who made the decision, and who knew about the decision and lied about it, are murderers of my son. >> chris: defense secretary panetta and charlie woods, father of the former navy s.e.a.l. killed in the benghazi attack. disagreeing over the decision not to provide military backu

exceptions of lincoln, lbj and fdr. his oceanic self-esteem, no deficit there, he smolders with resentment that he must actually ask for a second term. >> an orgy of words. >> fantastic. i should have my daughter read it. she's getting ready for the s.a.t. katty kay, take it away. >> george will feeling in flowery form there. >> is there a point there? >> one, he seems to be saying that president obama has a character issue that he doesn't like, that there's a certain arrogance there, that he doesn't feel that he has to actually go out and campaign. and we saw that in the first debate. we saw some of that to get involved in the politics in the first debate. if you ask people around washington, one of the character flaws that they will point to about barack obama is that there is a certain distance and a certain arrogance. but i think the first point that he makes that the president hasn't done anything, i just don't think that's true. it's very hard to look at this president's record and say that he's done nothing. first of all, there was health care reform. you may not have liked it, but
, to also reduce the deficit. my vote is mack. host: talk about commercials and ads on this race you have seen. especially the past couple of days and what you have been experiencing. caller: there are negative ads on both sides. never know what to believe. you see all kinds of negative things. the democrats, all kinds of negative things, the republicans. but you cannot base your vote on that. you have got to get their policies, principles, platforms, what they stand for, if they are conservative or liberal, and then, vote on that basis. host: had a thing florida will go over all? caller: overall it is one to go for romney. the polls are showing a couple point advantage to mitt romney. nelson, the democrat is ahead of mack, but we are all voting for mack and help him. host: wisconsin, on our line for independents. caller: appalling about the woman from wisconsin, my state about the woman from a woma from wisconsin. they say the debt is being rolled over. he is not fiscally responsible. he was nicknamed taxing it tummy when he was here -- taxing tommy. he is not fiscally responsible. and i
of the larger issue of what are we going to do about the deficit and deal with that. many of the leaders are now saying it is going to have to be a balanced approach. there will have to be revenues and serious cuts that have to be made. that that lies the middle ground and that is our task as representatives to get to that middle ground to work across the aisle and just imagine what we could do if we really worked together. it can happen and it will happen. >> shannon: it would be encouraging i know to americans regardless of party across the country. the president has taken some criticism for not getting more involved in this. do you think that there would be some benefit in him showing leadership and going to the hill and being in the room as hammer itdes try to hampster out? >> ternly not in the next 200 hours. he did that when the sequestration issue came up. it started over the debt limit thing. the republicans held at least the conservative part of the republican caucus in the house said no way were they going to allow the debt limit to be expanded and from that came the compromise of the
the deficit by so much, we're now $16 trillion in the hole, there were all these shovel-ready jobs that didn't happen, and do you feel like it was worth it, is the economy roaring? no. so i think economists will look, there's the keynesian approach where we're borrowing a ton of money from china, we're spending all this money to try to get the government to create demand. i think if you look at the experiment, it did not work. megyn: all right, panel, thank you all so much. >> thank you. megyn: well, residents and city officials getting a first look at the storm damage in one new jersey town. we will show you the latest pictures from long beach island that will shock you, next. i'm a conservative investor. i invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world bursting with opportunities. india, china, brazil, ishares, small-caps, large-caps, ishares. industrials. low cost. every dollar counts. ishares. income. dividends. bonds. i like bonds. ishares
